poor, broken, dirty little flower.

It was very sad actually, people didn’t even notice, kept walking on it, drove me NUTS as I shot this at the local botanic garden!

Why, oh why, do I not have your web design/coding skills? Or your photography skills? You should share these. Mail these skills to me in an envelope. Thanks. Love, Brittney

LOL thank you! Could you imagine that? Like it’s some sort of dust or liquid one could consume to acquire skills? I could creep myself out thinking about it…

sometimes the broken ones are the most beautiful :)

I couldn’t agree more!

Sad to see such a lovely flower broken and dirty!

posted on June 15th 2010 at 10:04PM CDT

OK, so now I’m depressed. Sigh… Thanks a lot, Sarah! :)

posted on June 15th 2010 at 10:04PM CDT

LOL!! That’s what I do! Depress people with flowers!

Life can be pretty hard sometimes. It’s a great reminder to take care of our environment.

posted on June 15th 2010 at 10:06PM CDT

Agreed!

Well if that’s not a metaphor for the fragility of us all, then I don’t know what is. Great photos. Very thought provoking. Well done Sarah!
Thanks for stopping by and linking up. Have a great evening. :)

Thank you so much! I think people want to ignore anything that isn’t “perfect” or “pretty”.

I’ve not been feeling uber fresh and awesome lately so I thought these photos were fitting.

You know, I didn’t even realize it was broken with the first one, just thought it was very earthy and beautiful.

Happy WW!

Oh yes, there were a couple more laying around, but I didn’t have time to shoot them (both kids were tired after being at the gardens for so long lol).

posted on June 15th 2010 at 10:36PM CDT

How sad. That first one is actually beautiful though. Great pics. Happy WW! Thanks for linkin up!

Sad to see a flower like that however a great picture!

posted on June 16th 2010 at 8:59AM CDT

Oh there were SO many parents just letting kids tear the flowers off or just run through the beds… this is at the botanic garden no less!

That is so poignant. You’ve captured beauty and sorrow in the same shots.

posted on June 16th 2010 at 9:34AM CDT

It really was quite sad, seeing everyone WALK on the flowers, people have no respect for even the smallest thing I swear!

posted on June 16th 2010 at 8:09AM CDT

Awww, poor little daisy. That first shot is just divine.

LOVING your blog design, and your photos are fantastic. I love that even “broken nature” can look amazingly beautiful.

posted on June 16th 2010 at 12:43PM CDT

Ahh thank you SO much!!

posted on June 16th 2010 at 11:05AM CDT

I think the second picture looks like an album cover for an emo band.

posted on June 16th 2010 at 12:44PM CDT

HAHAHA omg that is AWESOME!

posted on June 16th 2010 at 11:12AM CDT

Thank you! Currently I use a Nikon D90 with a variety of lenses although I mainly use my Sigma 105mm Macro and 50mm f/1.8.

posted on June 16th 2010 at 11:40AM CDT
